Jerusalem business owners on Friday were upset about a new law set to take effect next week which forces businesses to close at 11 p.m. and restaurants and cultural institutions to close at midnight, Israel Radio reported.

In response, business owners circulated a letter saying that the city is encouraging businesses and young people to leave Jerusalem, the report said.
